A belt bag is similar to a fanny pack, but fancier. These 18 designer bags keep your hands free for shuffle dancing at EDM festivals.
Last autumn we asked, “Are fanny packs cool again?” It turns out that they are. Belt bags, bum bags and fanny packs have been pictured at nearly ever EDM festival we see on Instagram. The style is perfect for large events, because it cinches around the waist, leaving the hands free to drink a beer, video record a DJ set, dance around, or even put your phone away for two seconds.
Here are 18 of the most coveted belt bags from this season, as selected by Slutty Raver Costumes. To learn more about each item, including where to buy it, click on the links.
The Chanel Sequins, Lambskin & Ruthenium-Finish Metal Waist Bag ($4,400) is the most coveted belt bag because it costs the most. That’s because they had to sacrifice a baby sheep for it.
Balenciaga released a lot of belt bags with Paris-themed charms on them. The Red & Black Quilted Wool Check Belt Bag ($2,050) is made from quilted wool perfect for fall and winter.
Gucci practically invented the quilted belt bag. This season watch out for the limited edition GG Marmont Velvet Belt Bag ($1,890) with crystal stars on it, now available for pre-order.

6. Saint Laurent
Take advantage of the shearling trend this fall in the Saint Laurent White Shearling Lou Belt Bag ($1,190). The shearling is extra soft because it is lamb wool. The rest is leather.
